My previous blog introduced four 2021 decorating trends that may surprise you. Here are a few more..... 

5. Natural Materials

We saw a renewed interest in rattan furniture and cane webbing over the past year, and this trend isn't going anywhere in 2021. Natural materials such as light-toned wood, jute, leather, ceramic, and live plants will continue to furnish homes in the new year, says Alessandra Wood, vice president of style at Modsy. She suggests layering a variety of natural finishes within a space to create depth and texture. Top a large jute rug with a smaller wool one, for example, or accessorize with pillows and throws made with organic fibers.

6. Closed Floor Plans

Throughout 2020, many families had to learn how to co-exist under the same roof from morning until night, and as we head into a new year, the appeal of open floor plans, where each room flows seamlessly into the next, has greatly diminished. "The pandemic has forced us to recognize how important our space is, and open floor plans aren't always the best decision when it comes to intentionally using a room," Santiago says. Carving out a designated space for different activities, such as remote work or homeschooling, allows for more privacy and limits distraction, she says.

7. Sustainable Furnishings

An increased focus on sustainability is a broader trend that impacts many aspects of our daily lives, including how we furnish our homes. We're seeing a shift with shoppers increasingly turning away from cheaply made, big-box store furniture in favor of high-quality pieces that are friendlier on the environment. "As fast fashion extends its reign over furniture and decor, we're seeing pushback and a desire among our customers to shop sustainably and invest in quality pieces they can keep for years," says Wood.
